Pitcairn Island Cruise Ship
The Aranui 5 is offering a special 13-day cruise to Pitcairn via some of the most beautiful and untouched islands across the three Tahitian archipelagos; Tuamotu, Gambier and the Austral Islands. Pitcairn is a gorgeous far-flung island located between Tahiti and Easter Island; it is so isolated that it is only accessible by sea. Pitcairn is home to a population of just 50 people all of which are descendants of Pitcairn’s first European settlers, the HMS Bounty mutineers. Get a truly authentic cultural experience socialising with the local families and gain a unique insight into the island’s storied history on this cruise.
